WOWODC West Direct to Web Presentation

I received a lot of very positive feedback about my Direct to Web (D2W) presentation at WOWODC West this year. A lot of it was along the lines of: “Wow D2W is very cool, it’s sad that everyone doesn’t know about it” Well, I agree, D2W is very cool, and everyone should know about it. So, I suggested to Pascal that we release the video for my D2W presentation for free.

The first half of the presentation has been available for a few weeks now but the second half was delayed, waiting for the processed audio.

Well, I’m very pleased to announce that the post-production work is now complete and both halves of the presentation are now available from the WOCommunity site (part 1, part 2) or from the WO podcast feed on iTunes.

Direct to Web is a phenomenally powerful but underused part of WebObjects. I hope these videos do a little to help it gain some wider recognition.

For those of you who would like to play along at home, the Movies framework and MySQL database dump I used in the presentation are available here:

Finally, I hope that these videos give you a sense of the quality and depth of the presentation at WOWODC West in general (they were uniformly awesome). If you found mine interesting, I’m sure you will enjoy the others. Pascal should have them available for sale shortly – or better yet – tickets are still available for WOWODC East in Montreal at the end of August.
